Connecting to Our Inner Wildness Thru Breathwork & Curiosity with Eryn Johnson

Today we’re speaking with Eryn Johnson from the Living Open podcast for mystics and seekers! Eryn Johnson is a Philly-based witch, intuitive, and creative. The foundation of her work is energetic and based on the belief that there's nothing wrong with you-- we are simply programmed from a young age to forget the truth of who we are.

She uses Reiki, tarot, breathwork, movement, and storytelling to bring her back to herself and to bring you back to you- back to your power, back to your magic, back to your intuition.

We chat about curiosity as intuition, how judgement has been a big part of Eryn’s journey with healing and how breathwork has totally cracked her open. We talk about nature as a mirror and reflection of the emotions we carry, and I share a very vulnerable moment of grief and how expression and release of these energies is so critical for our vitality.

Eryn shares how she builds her trust muscle for greater connection to her intuition and the practices and tools that have been game-changing in her life experience.

Eryn is also offering a free gift for listeners (which is different from the one she mentions in the interview!), click below for detailed show notes and to access her 8-minute breathwork meditation for daily spiritual practice.
